HDMI


To connect a GoPro to your TV with an HDMI cable, there are a few things you’ll need since the camera itself doesn’t have an HDMI port.

First, grab a Mediamodus, which adds an HDMI-poort among other features.

Here’s how to get your GoPro hooked up to your TV:

  • Make sure your GoPro is off, then slide it into the Media Mod. This accessory not only gives you the HDMI port you need but also boosts your camera’s audio with a better mic and allows for external mic connections. It’s great for adding more accessories, perfect for live streaming or vlogging.
  • Find the micro-HDMI port on the back of the Media Mod and plug in the micro-HDMI end of your cable there.
  • Next, plug the other end of the HDMI cable into your TV or monitor’s HDMI port.
  • Power on your camera.
  • Use your TV or monitor’s remote to switch to the HDMI input you’ve plugged into. You should now see your GoPro Hero 11’s output on the screen.

Which Media Mod To Choose?

Which HDMI Cable Do You Need?

You’ll also need to buy an HDMI cable separately, as it’s not included with the camera.

On the market, you’ll find four main types of HDMI cables:

  • Standaard HDMI: This is the most fundamental version, suitable for transmitting video signals in 720p or 1080i.
  • High-Speed HDMI: Designed for higher resolutions and frame rates, this cable supports 1080p, 4K, and even 8K video, along with 3D content and deep color.
  • Premium High-Speed HDMI: Building on the capabilities of High-Speed HDMI, these cables also support dynamic HDR and enhanced audio return channel (eARC), among other features.
  • HDMI met ultrahoge snelheid: Representing the cutting edge, these cables accommodate the highest resolutions and frame rates, including 8K60 and 4K120, and support advanced features like variable refresh rate (VRR) and quick frame transport (QFT).

For the optimal viewing experience when connecting your GoPro Hero to your TV, it’s advisable to use at least a High-Speed HDMI cable.

Going wireless is the way to go, especially when it comes to enjoying your GoPro footage on your TV without the hassle of cables.

Here are a couple of methods to get your GoPro footage up on the big screen wirelessly:

  • First, transfer your footage to a computer or laptop. From there, you can use Apple AirPlay or Google Cast (Chromecast) naar mirror the footage onto your TV. Check out how to connect your GoPro to your computer for more details.
  • Alternatively, you can cast directly from your smartphone. The specific GoPro model you have isn’t crucial for this method since the casting happens through your computer or phone, not directly from the camera.

Echter, de key factor here is the capability of your computer or smartphone. It needs to be powerful enough to stream high-resolution videos smoothly and must have the right software or app to mirror the content to your smart TV.

USB / SD Card


You have a couple of options for watching your GoPro footage on your TV. One method involves using a computer, while the other is more direct and skips the computer step.

  • For the first method, transfer your GoPro videos to a USB flash drive using a computer. Once transferred, plug the flash drive into the USB port on your TV.
  • Alternatively, you can take the microSD card out of your GoPro, place it into a USB adapter, and then plug the adapter directly into your TV’s USB port.

If you’re planning to watch your videos in 4K resolution, be sure to use a USB 3.0 flash drive, as the older USB 2.0 version doesn’t support 4K video playback.
